I have a Parker Knoll to fix up with some esoteric webbing and grommets and tension spring in it. Drawing I blank, I had a rummage in this inherited box of goodies from a PROPER OLD-FASHIONED SEWER. It has grommets and punchers and eyelets and string and springs and waxed linen thread and unidentified tools/ instruments, perished rubber, chalk, litmus paper, a magnet, razor blade, a gabillion buttons and some pretty flammable looking old plastic ribbon. All in cake/tobacco tins. And some pre-decimal coins, so I’m already up, cash-wise, on the day.

OLD-school sewers- TICKETY-BOO SALUTES YOU.

It seems as if the new workspace is conducive to beauty, if I don’t say so myself. See how a frankly disgusting brown ratty chair is transformed, ta-daa *waves wand*, into a nimble-ankled, Zoffany-covered, rinky-dinky-pinky poppet. Yeah, I KNOW!
